The Legend of the DreamCatcher

A spider was quietly spinning his web in his own space.  It was beside the sleeping space of Nokomis, the grandmother.  Each day, Nokomis watched the spider at work, quietly spinning away.  One day as she was watching him, her grandson came in.  "Nokomis-iya!" he shouted, glancing at the spider.  He stomped over to the spider, picked up a shoe and went to hit it.  "No-keegwa," the old lady whispered, "don't hurt him." "Nokomis, why do you protect the spider?" asked the little boy.

The old lady smiled, but did not answer.  When the boy left, the spider went to the old woman and thanked her for saving his life.  He said to her, "For many days you have watched me spin and weave my web.  You have admired my work. In return for saving my life, I will give you a gift."  He smiled his special spider smile and moved away, spinning as he went.  Soon the moon glistened on a magical silvery web moving gently in the window. "See how I spin?" he said.  "See and learn, for each web will snare bad dreams.  Only good dreams will go through the small hole.  This is my gift to you. Use it so that only good dreams will be remembered.  The bad dreams will become hopelessly entangled in the web.

Another Legend of the DreamCatcher

Long ago when the word was young, an old Lakota spiritual leader was on a high mountain and had a vision.  In his vision, Iktomi, the great trickster and teacher of wisdom, appeared in the form of a spider.  Iktomi spoke to him in a sacred language.  As he spoke, Iktomi the spider picked up the elder's willow hoop which had feathers, horse hair, beads and offerings on it, and began to spin a web.

He spoke to the elder about the cycles of life; how we begin our lives as infants, move on through childhood and on to adulthood.  Finally we go to old age where we must be taken care of as infants, completing the cycle.  "But", Iktomi said as he continued to spin his web, "in each time of life there are many forces; some good and some bad.  If you listen to the good forces, they will steer you in the right direction.  But, if you listen to the bad forces, they'll steer you in the wrong direction and may hurt you.  So these forces can help, or can interfere with the harmony of Nature."  While the spider spoke, he continued to weave his web.

When Iktomi finished speaking, he gave the elder the web and said, "The web is a perfect circle with a hole in the center.  Use the web to help your people reach their goals, making good use of their ideas, dreams and visions.  If you believe in the great spirit, the web will catch your good ideas and the bad ones will go through the hole."  The elder passed on his vision to the people and now many Indian people hang a dream catcher above their bed to sift their dreams and visions.  The good is captured in the web of life and carried with the people, but the evil in their dreams drops through the hole in the center of the web and is no longer a part of their lives.  It's said that the dream catcher holds the destiny of the future.

The dream net has been made for many generations.  Where spirit dreams have played, hung above the cradle board, or in the lodge up high, The dream net catches bad dreams, while good dreams slip on by.  Bad dreams become entangled among the sinew thread.  Good dreams slip through the center hole, while you dream upon your bed.  This is an ancient legend.  Since dreams will never cease, hang this dream net above your bed, dream on, and be at peace.
